Thea Kocher

2016 Speaker

THEA KOCHER has over 11 years’ experience in the luxury beauty industry. She started at Bliss, a multi-channel spa and skincare company in New York, working her way up to brand manager in just three years. After helping position Bliss for a $100M acquisition in 2010, Kocher accepted a position in North America marketing for the growing QVC and Sephora accounts at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, a nearly $1B company within the Estee Lauder Companies. Looking for a greater challenge, she then rotated into international business development at Bobbi Brown, driving her regions to overtake North America by significant margin. Her final role at Bobbi Brown, director of global marketing, qualified her to become executive director of marketing for Caudalie, an independent, natural, French skincare company with distribution at Sephora, bluemercury, and other high end boutiques. Today she serves as chief marketing officer for LXMI, a luxury skincare company that scours the world for rare, organic ingredients to work wonders for skin, and give work to women. Kocher graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. from Harvard and resides in New York. @lxmi
